互助建房组织Nationwide推出千万英镑金融科技投资基金

近日,英国互助建房组织Nationwide宣布设立总额5000万英镑的投资基金,专注投资具备发展前景的金融科技初创企业。

据了解,该基金将主要关注以下几个领域,分别是:房屋与家庭、个人数据与身份、财务健康、社区与社会、银行平台、运营效率和其他新增细分市场。

Nationwide表示,该基金是其努力保持创新领衔优势,对抗高街银行同行以及数字金融机构的一种策略

Nationwide强调,它不仅仅是想把钱投入创业公司,而且还会提供直接的产品开发支持,通过互助关系打造长期的合作环境。

据悉,该基金已经进行了第一笔投资。获得支持的是一家叫作acasa的科技创业公司,该公司致力于为共享住宿中的房东和住户的日常财务提供帮助。

UK building society Nationwide has joined the fintech venture fund party, putting aside £50 million to invest in promising startups. The mutual will be focussed around seven main themes: house and home; personal data and identity; financial wellness; community and society; banking-as-a-platform; operational efficiency; and new segments.

Nationwide says that the fund is part of its efforts to stay at the forefront of innovation, as it seeks to take on its larger high street rivals as well as a host of new digital-first challengers.

The building society is stressing that it is not simply looking to pump money into startups, but will also offer direct product development support, arguing that its mutual status means it will focus on long-term partnerships.

The fund has already made its first investment, backing acasa, a prop-tech startup focussed on supporting both landlords and tenants living in shared accommodation with their everyday finances.
